I've been having a lot more vivid dreams in the last seven months or so.

Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 749398

I had a dream that I traveled to another state to go to a Swans concert with my mom lol and we were looking for ear plugs or something but then I remember something to do with being locked out (or maybe in?) of the concert, I have this image in my head of a younger Gira screaming into the mic while bending over and these red lights flashing and a crowd of people in what looked like some kind of high-school gym with a stage, it was bizarre.

then the dream switched into me being in a car with my mom and dad and my dad drove us off a cliff and I thought we were gonna land in a lake and drown but we ended up safely on the ground...

Official comfy /chat/ reading/literature/audiobook thread Chewy [Element Of Fortitude]!MUSIC.FbVY 678946[View]

figured we have a thread going for music so why not one for books?

my big new year's resolution was to start reading again and I just finished my first book of the year, Catch 22.

I enjoyed it a good bit, especially the last few chapters. if you guys have read it, let me know what you think (after some googling I can tell that popular opinion on the book is pretty divided).

I'm starting out my reading with audiobooks because they are much easier for me to focus on than...actual books.

I'm not sure what to start next but I will start it soon, I got some recs from an /oat/ thread a couple weeks ago, so some of you may have seen me post about this stuff already.

Idea of new MLP stuff (and games) web storage 517595[View]

Greetings, everypony. I haven't found any good site where all games and programs related to mlp are stored. So I've decided to make my own site, with a good search engine and easy tags to find the thing you might be looking for. I'm not going to make it a colorful popular web storage, just a simple html pages. I want to do that so that none of mlp stuff get lost forever. Unfortunately, this idea has visited my mind only a few days ago. If somebody decided to do it in, for example, 2011, then maybe not so many good games would be lost as they are now.

P.S. sorry for my language. I'm not a native speaker.

I'm more or less attacking the fact that you're going after an artist you seem to only even look into when there's drama, as if he does nothing else. Shadman is a huge artist who draws a lot of material, and honestly, good or bad, I can't think of too many artists who draw loli porn ironically, so the idea that because he draws that he's baiting is kinda dumb.

I personally don't like his style, I'm just saying you're making a lot of harsh judgements on someone who you have admitted to not looking into much.

(There's really been a lot of these, right?)

The stormy season of April had passed by during the night, and with the rising sun, the day is giving way to the fragrant bloom of May blossoms. Clouds part way for the bright sun to illuminate the paintbrush hues of the landscape, and the warm late-season breeze carries with it all varieties of birdsong, filling the air with the color and chorus of life.

Which is why this was the perfect day to stay indoors to do some inner research. For once, it was better to disregard these byproducts for today, the piercing bore of human progress has finally cracked open the foundations of reality; you had just discovered a time machine.

Well, what else could it be? It even looked like someone had done a spectacularly terrible job of trying to disguise the fact that it could pretty much only be a time machine. It was, in fact the most stereotypically time machine-like time machine anyone could imagine, yet it looks as if someone had sloppily taped cardboard around it in an attempt to make it look like a refrigerator. It was such shoddy work, and you wondered why anyone had even bothered.
MOD EDIT:Original text moved to hide tag
The thing that was definitely a time machine loomed like a statue in the center of the room, wafting out a faint scent of ozone and copper. It must have displaced the matter around it as it arrived, since one of its edges was occupying the space where half of your chair should have been. As you shove the chair aside, it toppled over on its two remaining legs, thumping down on the dusty floor. Looking around, you started reaching for the entrance handle, but thought better of it. Instead, you move over to the small mailbox-shaped bin attached to the side of the machine. There was nothing inside except for a newspaper clipping and an envelope. You take a look at the newspaper, a cutout of the week’s weather, dated three years into the future. It was otherwise unremarkable, so you open up the envelope.

Wow, why would you write something like that? It was disorienting, seeing your own handwriting attached to a message you clearly have never written, and definitely, resolutely, never will. But now, you know you will. The presence of the note, along with the time machine, is undeniable. With the staggering weight of this realization, you reached for a chair, but found only half of one. You plop down on the

Capital and Wages algol 754077[View]

An issue I've had with both classical marxism and austrian economics is the disassociation of wages and consumption.

To have a more prosperous economy, we need to focus more on the cost of capital than we do the price of wages. Agree or disagree? Any ideas on ways to decrease the operating cost of capital?

Generally, capital costs and wage costs are the two factors that influence production cost. In a market, production costs trend downward as businesses try to squeeze out more profit than their competitors. Growth occurs if consumption is greater than the cost of production.
So if capital costs are inelastic or fail to go down, wages are driven downward. If wages increase but capital costs do as well, then the increased consumption can end up failing to compensate for increased production costs.
An issue I've seen in a lot of older economic theory is that they fail to consider consumers and workers as the same entity. Especially marxism can be production centric and give little thought to consumption. A reduction in wages brings down consumption which slows overall growth in the economy. This is one of the predictions of a crisis of capitalism though early marxist underestimated the changes to capital costs that could occur.

The key then is that decreasing the costs of capital is far more important to driving growth than wages. In our current slow growth environment, decreasing capital costs might be a pre-requisite to increasing wages. The left needs to focus on changes to the operating cost of capital and the right wing obsessive focus on bringing down the cost of employees and wages is misguided at best.

Thoughts? I'm thinking a major way that we could move towards a socialized economy while decreasing the cost of capital would be legislation around reducing rent cost. Take urban homesteading, get rid of some of the racist parts of it, and work on the idea of "if a few people rehab an abandoned building, they can get it for pretty much the cost of labor" as a way to open up building ownership. As well, municipal utility internet and communications could decrease the operating cost greatly for businesses and co-ops. Maybe even start setting up tool and machine sharing services and whatnot. The thing though, is that if you're trying to effect a macro level thing like growth you don't want to just shift private costs onto the public and vice versa.

The answerr is yes.
BUT there is a big but.

Capital is not so easily controlled or readily available, especially in the long run.
Basically you're gonna end up running headlong not just into the people with power but into power of wealth itself.

After all growth isn't to the benefit of singular powerful people and they'd rather squabble among one another as they have for millenia, while growth benefits social mobility and thus sttengthens the group of potential competitors in their bracket in addition to forcing them to take risk to offset the loss of wealth via inflation.
So thelast thing you'll want to do is for capital to stagnate, as their owners are the ones with the least interest in growth; deflation is far more profitable for them, even moreso if you take into account the loss of the need to take risks.

However targetting specific segments like buildings as you propose is not unrealistic, just don't overplay your hand and pick your battles.

I think it's an idea worth exploring. I used to wonder if creating cooperatives or at least allowing the people to self organize would help the under developed regions.

In this day and age helping people, businesses and industries to adapt fluidly will be a key.

Rapira85 754524

That can be a part too. Capital inflow will eventually help local capital to grow after all.
